An easy traybake to make for tea or a coffee morning.
Preheat oven 180C/gas4 Grease and line a 24x33m tin
1 tbspn cocoa plus extra to dust over top
2 tbspn instant coffee granules
2 tbspn warm water
225g each of butter, soft brown sugar and sr flour
1 tspn baking powder
cinnamon for dusting top
Icing - 100g white chocolate broken in pieces, 50g butter, 3 tbspn milk, 175g icing sugar
Mix the cocoa and coffee with the water.
Put the rest of the ingredients in a food processor or mixer and blitz together. Add the coffee/cocoa and mix again.
Pour into the tin and bake for 30-35 mins. Cool in the tin.
For the icing - Melt the chocolate, butter and milk together over simmering water. Sieve the icing sugar and stir into the chocolate mix.
Spread the icing over the cake and dust the top with a little cocoa then cinnamon.
Cut the cake into bars and if you want, put the bars into paper cases. I just decided to do this as I seem to have a lot of paper cases lurking in the back of the cupboard! The bars have a good texture and aren't too sweet, contrasting well with the sweet white chocolate icing. A handy recipe for a traybake.
